Please share a memory of Daniel to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Daniel Michael Padilla, 70 years old, of Sacramento, perished unexpectedly on October 8th, 2022. Danny, as he was known to family and friends, was born February 20th, 1952 to Clemente and Margaret Padilla. He was born and raised in South Sacramento, graduating from Luther Burbank High School in 1970.

He was also a proud plank holder of the USS John McCain. Upon his return he began his truck driving career and was a proud member of the Teamsters Union.

An outspoken man with a brusque exterior, Danny was known for being a DIY enthusiast around his property. He was a generous landlord hosting BBQs regularly and gifting toys to the children of his tenants. He had a taste for bourbon, a sweet tooth for ice cream and pies, and a fierce love for his family and friends.
